I had worked in a variety of positions, from front line to back office of banks, non-banks & financial institutions previously, which help me understand the challenges of the various working levels.

I had worked in various areas such as sales & marketing, credit & collections, operations, risk management, which help me understand the consumer finance business end-to-end.

I had also held various leadership positions (e.g. Division Head, Business Head, Country Head, Chief Executive Officer) previously - which experiences will assist me in doing a better job. I had also worked in different countries and experience different cultures - which will help me have a better understanding of 'diversity'.

ABF: Anything else you'd like to add?
I am result-oriented, focused and have people's welfare at heart. I believe the best results will be achieved when the people and I are totally aligned on the common goals of the organization. Both the values of the individuals and the organization must be aligned to get the best results.
